Had a minor issue to see him for. No wait time. The doctor was mindful of being timely. There was anissue with my prescription and he took care of it right way. Overall, a good experience.

Dr. Dean Spellman is amazing. He is humble, smart and very efficient when it comes down to every detail concerning any issue a patient is having. He is a great listener and has a strong belief in taking good care ofall of his patients. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is in need of a foot doctor. I am 100% certain that I will not be suffering with anymore future pain in my ankle and foot. All pros and no cons: The wait was short and the doctor is great. The establishment is clean and the employees are so nice and patient. Thumbs up!!!

When you're in pain and just want the injury addressed with as minimal stress as possible, this appointment was that for me. Dr. Spellman tended to my situation with care and provided the immediate knowledge to expedite the care of mybroken foot. He listened carefully to my explanation on how I succumbed to my injury. Took the time to make sure I saw the injury via digital imaging and then physically showed me why it happened the way it did. To further make sure his diagnosis was correct and that I wouldn't require immediate surgery; I was scheduled to get a second opinion the next day from his partner Dr. Stephanian. The office wait, both days, was within reason and the staff quite helpful and knowledgeable.

I'm not one for a negative review but I truly can't get over his poor bedside manner. I was in and out of the office in less than 20, which may sound ideal to some, but not in my situation whereI expected a lot more conversation, compassion, information. This was a quick "why are you here? what do you expect from treatment? (an incredibly backhanded question), and what are you going to do to fix it for yourself?" No thanks. I'll take my business elsewhere.

After a visit to Dr. Spellman, I was able to find some reprieve for foot pain that I was having for a really long time, he did an X-ray, gave me an injection for my considerable pain which helped a lotand told me to come back in a week to check my injection site. He also fitted me with orthotics but also made it very clear that although my insurance covers it he would have to wait for a check from my insurance to cover the orthotic in order for me to receive it which sometimes takes a month, makes sense. He also said if I wanted it sooner I could come out of pocket and get reimbursed, also makes sense. At the end of the day a doctors office is a business, I was very happy with the doctor and staff and I will be going back

I went to Dr. Spellman because of foot pain, and to get orthotics. His office was very disorganized and it was hard to reach him to schedule a time to pick up the orthotics once ordered, and then to have themadjusted. It took a total of three months just for me to finally get them. Dr. Spellman seemed knowledgable enough, but did not spend enough time discussing my issues with me. The people working under him were nice but rather unprofessional. They cut my orthotics wrong without consulting him, had my first and last name spelled incorrectly on orders, and couldn't find receipt of my payment in their system. I would not recommend Dr. Spellman as a podiatrist.

He did a good job removing corns, but he did not address my concerns about foot problems I'm experiencing. When I asked him a specific question about how to strengthen my ankle so my feet don't roll over to outside hetold me to "click my heels". When I asked him again, hoping he would give me a more professional answer, he repeated this and clarified that it was with the ruby slippers. This was a very disrespectful way of saying forget about trying to solve this problem. He did not address any of the questions I brought up about foot neuropathy and other problems caused by recent chemotherapy. I won't be going back.

Doctor spent less than a minute in the room with me. Was dismissive of my questions, gave me a prescription for a drug that three pharmacies didn't have (and didn't even have in their databases) when pretty much any moisturizer would have done fine.

It was a useless visit for me. Was told to get up on a table then tabs were stuck on my feet. Some machine took pictures. I was shown the pictures with minimal explanation. Was told to walk forward and backward,and then that all that could be done was to get insanely expensive insoles that would provide temp help, but never remedy my situation. Zero bedside manner. Zero hope. :( oh...and after filling out all the forms on ZocDoc, I still had to fill everything out all over again at the office. NICE!
